Kandinsky at the Guggenheim

 I can't tell you how excited the prospect of seeing this show is to me!!!

Nearly each of the exploratory works from 1909 to 1914 — there are more than 40 here — is a hole in the membrane of observable reality that reveals a nonobjective cosmos defined by tangles of line and colored shapes and shadings. Each is a brave new crowded world in free fall, full of more forms, colors and agitation than any single painting needs.      Roberta Smith, in today's New York Times
